No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake Bars with a Pistachio Crust

Cheesecake filling ingredients: 

  • 3 cups cream cheese, softened, 
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
Pistachio crust ingredients: 

  • 2 1/2 cups salted pistachios
  • 1 cup medjool dates
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
First we are going to make the crust! Pulse pistachios in a food processor until it turns to fine crumbs. Add in dates and honey, and puree until mixture rolls itself into a ball. Press crust mixture into a greased pan. Wrap and place in fridge.

Beat cream cheese in a stand mixer until fluffy. Add in coconut sugar, cane sugar, lemon juice, zest, and salt. Continue mixing until well combined. Spread onto crust and place in freezer for 4 hours, then let defrost in fridge at least 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
